Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

no, you don't have leukemia

for some people, WBC counts of 2.4 is normal

you don't have a current active infection

if you have bad anxiety symptoms, you may benefit from treatment for bad anxiety symptoms.

I'm sure you exercise regularly.
